Solutions for Serious Kid Clutter
Every parent faces the same problem – kid clutter! Backpacks, shoes, mittens, and gloves – the list is endless! And all at the front door.
The entryway to any home should be open and welcoming. It immediately sets the tone of the entire house, and any home would look messy if you saw a pile of children’s shoes and school bags on the floor.
This renovation project was for a family-focused home with young children. We had to consider each child’s storage needs at the small entrance and their rooms to control the clutter that inevitably comes with children.
Our young clients, Tristan and Sebastian, ages four and seven, needed functional storage space—one designated stowaway locker in their small entryway.
Therefore, with a good design plan, we had our talented cabinet maker, Alex, custom-build something that would work well for young boys.
The Problem: Kid Clutter
We all want to be more organized, but this is challenging regarding small spaces and our little people. Traditional closets are not kid-friendly. Coat hangers and shelves are too high and inaccessible.
We installed Easy-to-reach knobs inside the closet for each child to hang their coats and backpacks in their chosen colour.
Allowing small children to reach and grab their coats and bags and put them back helps them be more organized.
The open shelf at the bottom stores their little shoes and keeps them organized. We extended the upper shelf to the ceiling for extra storage.
The result: A Clean and Organized Entryway
Now, When you walk into their home, you find a clean, streamlined and aesthetically pleasing space! Their entrance locker has a classic design with just enough whimsy to delight our sweet clients!
Some of the benefits of our custom-built lockers are:
Easy-to-reach knobs for hanging coats and backpacks
Open shelf for storing shoes
Upper shelf for extra storage
Classic design with a touch of whimsy
Living large in a small space means providing proper storage for everything and every need. Less clutter equals more space, both physically and mentally!
